Sweetings apple trees

Warks, United Kingdom Gb

Fifty or more years ago, my grandmother had apple trees in her garden which sh ealways called sweetings. They were very tiny apples and quite small trees, too. Are they still available, and if so, where?



Sweetings is a type of apple rather than a variety, so yes there well maybe a small apple variety with sweet fruit, but without a name it is a bit hard to know whether it is still propagated.
It may well also be that this was a one off lucky self sown tree from a pip rather than a specific type.
